Amity Taxes

There is a real concern with taxes in the township. We are paying more than we want to. There are 2 main reasons:

1. The Daniel Boone School Board increased taxes by 11.4% in July 2005. Amity now has the 3rd highest school taxes in Berks County. See details here.

2. New housing costs more in Amity and, as a result, homes are assessed higher and pay higher taxes. See an article here and here.
